Do you hold onto your anger?



Infographic from

Holding onto your anger, can be detrimental, not only to your sanity and peace of mind but to your body. Yes, learning about stress, and its affect on the body has been part of my studies in school. With what’s going on in our country right now, I thought it would be a good focus for a quick blogpost.

Your body reacts to ANY anger, fear or stress the same way it would if a tiger was chasing you. It goes into survival mode, and into what’s known as “fight or flight” mode. Your body releases sugar for energy, increasing glucose levels, while raising your blood pressure and breathing. Meanwhile, it shuts down or suppresses your digestive and immune systems, among other things. See the following article, at Dr. Josh Axe’s website to discover how stress affects you.: 10 ways chronic stress is killing your quality of life

Meanwhile, I found this video, and Buddha’s viewpoint on anger. ENJOY!

  1. Thank you for dropping by my blog.


  2. Yes – I held on for too long and now I’m ‘letting go’… bliss! I love the Buddha clip too. Thanks for following my blog and I’m looking forward for some more ‘food for thought’.. x


  3. Yes. My husband keeps telling me about the river of forgiveness but me and one of my sons just don’t get it, but my husband and other son can just do it…at least after a bit. I know its for my good to let go….but if I ever get a chance to get even, I certainly will.
